Scholarship Opportunities

Applications are currently available to Resurrection students for the scholarships listed below. Applications can be found in the Main Office or in the links below. 

Danielle Marie Pisterzi Scholarship
The Danielle Marie Pisterzi Scholarship was established in Danielle's memory in 2013 after an automobile accident. The scholarship fund was created at Resurrection College Prep and will be awarded to two Resurrection students who demonstrate the qualities that Danielle so beautifully exhibited. Danielle was completing a degree in Accounting from Northern Illinois University and is remembered by classmates as a hard-working, determined student and by family and friends for her infectious smile that led her to make friends with anyone she met. The two $1000 scholarships recognize juniors or seniors who have been a 3 or 4 year member of the Resurrection Cross Country team (one of Danielle's passions).   Application

Parents Club Scholarship
The Parents Club Scholarship is a $1000 award that was established by the Resurrection Parents Club as a means of financial support for parents who are experiencing financial hardship due to special circumstances.  Priority will be given to students who have not received additional tuition assistance or scholarships.  Application
